Follow up with the Employer

As soon as possible after the interview sit quietly somewhere and review what happened. It may be helpful to make notes about what you feel went well and not so well.

Within 24 hours, but no later than five working days, send a thank you letter to everyone who interviewed you. A sample Thank You Letter is included in this guidebook.

After 2 to 3 weeks if you haven't heard from the employer feel free to contact them renewing your interest in the position. This can be accomplished by phone, mail or e-mail. Should you receive a number of rejections please visit Student Employment Services at Gateway.
